Animal of the Day – 20070731

The Orca, Killer Whale, Whale Killer, general oceanic bad-ass.  These are complex creatures, in many instances highly socially organized.  They are intelligent, employing complex hunting behaviors and they teach these behaviors to their young.  The Wiki article mentions that orcas have been known to hunt deer and moose on the islands off of the northwest shores of North America.

To an Orca, the world is black and white, you are either a source of food, or a potential source of food.  Mr. Fu likes ’em!
